IMPLEMENTATION PLAN 4
Section E: Implementation Plan
June 17, 2020
Settings and potential subjects
The EBP project would be best applied in hospitals and health care facilities with pediatric units, with the potential subjects being the nurses working in these units. Accessing these subjects would be made possible through visits to five health care facilities with pediatric units. Drafted approval forms would be distributed to the participating nurses, with the head of their department being a signatory ion all the forms.
This project would require six months for the introduction and full implementation. The first weeks of the first month would be spent in the determination of the medical facilities to implement the plan. The remaining weeks of the first month would be to conduct training while putting up the required systems to implement EBP. The second, third, and fourth would be for the implementation and running of the evidence-based practice. Key performance indicators shall be set to help gauge the success of the plan. Evaluation of the effectiveness of the plan would be in the fifth month. Required changes shall be made in the sixth month.
Required human resources would be the experts required to train the nurses on the requirements of the EBP. The implementation would also require financial resources to invest in the systems supporting the plan and pay the hired experts. These finances would also be used in the provision of incentives and the purchase of rewards to recognize outstanding performers.
Methods and Instruments
Measurements instruments of choice would be the questionnaires. These questionnaires shall measure the nurses’ satisfaction with the introduced plan. Also, the nurses would be able to freely give their opinions on the changes in the plan to increase its efficiency and effectiveness. The questionnaires would be shared among the respondents who would dully fill the forms and return them to a designated location without indicating their details. Anonymity helps in maintaining the confidentiality of the participants.
Delivery of the Intervention
The intervention in question is pediatric asthma education, with the best mode of the delivery being training. Experts on the intervention would be hired where the training would be provided through an open forum. This forum will accord all the nurses an equal platform to ask questions and give opinions.
Data Collection Plan
Data collection would be through the focus groups. The focus group would be an easy means of determining the groups’ opinions on the introduction of the intervention. Also, this is efficient as it helps save the money that would be used in running individual interviews. In ensuring the privacy of the collected data, all information about the intervention would be stored in electronic forms under high encryption. Characteristically, the sharing of information would be through encrypted files.
Strategies to deal with barriers
Possible challenges and barriers that the intervention may encounter are such as resistance and financial constraints. In dealing with the outlined issues, the managers of the plan could obtain financial institutions such as banks. To curb resistance, there would be adequate efforts to sensitize the participants on the importance of the intervention as a means of improving health outcomes.
Feasibility of the implementation
Huge costs would be incurred on the investments on the personnel to facilitate training. The complexity of the implementation of the intervention means that the plan would consider hiring several experts in the field of concern. Also, there would be huge investments in data security to avoid compromising the safety of the collected data and the respondents.
Discontinuing proposed Solutions
Discontinuation of a proposed solution would be after adequate evaluation of the same. The evaluation shall involve the input of the hired team of experts and the nurses to practice intervention. Relatively, the evaluation would be in line with the findings after comparing the solutions with the formulated key performance indicators.
